rebuilding. i don't know how many c-span viewers remember or even know how much -- how many blame france bears in the underlying causes of haiti's poverty. sometime in the 18 20's, france demanded all these tributes back to it getting their rightful freedom. i heard france didn't stop the pames until 1946. these are some of the causes of haiti being involved this way. i'm ashamed of this. so much of french furniture was build from hatian wood. host: thank you for your call. guest: commenting on the deforestation of that country. absolutely going back to thomas jefferson and the history of haiti. declaring independence from france. haiti became this orphan child of the caribbean. it lost france. it lost any kind of help. the u.s. wasn't interested in helping this island that wasn't near them at the time that the u.s. was still expanding and part of its own. they didn't really pay that much attention. accept that france eventually demanded to compensate them for the land lot of. haiti had to boor row money in order to pay france back. they were indebited to us and france in paying for thei

strongest. secondly, net management inflows were at 5.4 billion swiss francs in the fourth quarter. if you compare that with ubs, that was extremely strong. the strongest impulse came from the americas and asia. also the private banking margin was higher than expected at 130 basis points. so several positive take aways here. still a few drou backs if you take a look at these numbers here. especially if fourth quarter net profit, that was below expect ages as you mentioned at 800 million swiss francs. even if you take the one up charges out of there, that was the u.s. settlement. credit charges pretax was still below expectations. why? we saw a higher overall tax rate and let me point out that fixed income revenues in its investment bank were down more than 60%. we know investment banking revenues would go down. they would normalize and this is a higher or bigger job than anticipated. with that, ross, let me send jobs back over to you. >> thank you carolin for that. >>> the ftse 100 up 1.25%. a little less for the cac 40 and smi up 1.3%. we'll check in now with joshua raymond from citi inde

patricia, we've heard from france telecom today. i wonder what's happening with them, too. they have turned around. they were first of all falling on the back of what i thought were in line, disappointing numbers. so when it comes to the loss for the fourth quarter, we expect the net profits to be booked. but that didn't happen. never mind. the stock did turn around a little bit as we see. they're being traded up about 9.53 euros right now. what i thought was interesting, though, is with regards to their dividend policy, not only they're keeping the dividends for 2009 in european shares, but they've promised for the next two years 77 cents a share minimum. so maybe they want to schmooze the shareholders in the long-term, ross. >> thavngs for that, patricia. there's a lot of financials that have reported, as well. stephane has the details. >> the greek unit was not concerned by the country's debt problem and they're still on track to break even in 2011 and credit agricole has no plans to sell it. the bank says that all praises are performing well based on the early indications for to
